Just like the title says, I'm not sure if I am a stroker or tweener. Also would like to get a new ball at the end of my league. Am I rev dominant or speed dominant? What would be some good suggested dual angle layouts for me? Also any feedback and critique is welcomed. Thanks in advance

Not a stroker in the traditional sense.

Can you do a video with your pap marked and a line going from the pap to just above your fingers? If you can do that you can get your tilt, rotation, speed, and rev rate. Dual angles are most effective when all the information needed is available. Just guessing can lead to some poor results.

I realize this has been said already, but your style is more akin to a tweener not only because you plant (though this is not necessarily a trait of even most tweeners), but also because you put a bit more hand into the release than a stroker (which is a characteristic of tweeners).
